Hey Rebecca,
	You can always check what you installed via the install.log
usually located in /tmp. If its not there and you have installed RPM you
can figure it out by the command rpm -q --all | less. This will query the
rpm database for all installed  packages. Another way is typing which gcc
or cc as those are the standard C compilers. g++ for C++.
